The Big Bang Theory gang cross over to Young Sheldon
Young Sheldon's world is about to expand in a Big way as characters from The Big Bang Theory appear in the upcoming second season finale, TVLine has reported.
Younger versions of Sheldon's adult friends Leonard, Penny, Howard, Bernadette, Raj, and his future wife Amy will appear in next week's episode, "A Swedish Science Thing and the Equation for Toast".
It's not clear how the Big Bang characters will be introduced to the Young Sheldon universe with none of them living in Texas. Before they all came to live in Pasadena, the group was spread as far afield as Nebraska, New Jersey and India.
The Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon had their first crossover last December when The Big Bang Theory's Sheldon watched a video tape from his childhood, featuring his father George (Lance Barber), brother Georgie (Montana Jordan) and his younger self (Iain Armitage).
The second season finale of Young Sheldon airs next Thursday, May 16 at the later time of 9/8c, right after the hour-long series finale of The Big Bang Theory.
Although The Big Bang Theory is coming to an end, CBS has already renewed Young Sheldon for another two years, taking the show through to its fourth season in 2020/21.
